Choosing the Type of Yacht to Charter

Chartering a yacht as part of your luxury vacation in Florida is a great idea. There are some options for what type of yacht is available to rent. Planning Florida Yacht Charters does not have to be a difficult task and a good place to start is to decide what type of yacht you’d like to spend part of your vacation on.


A catamaran yacht has two hulls in parallel to each other, giving it a wide stance on the water. Catamarans are more stable in the water than other yachts. Because of the twin hulls, there is less of the hull immersed in water and creates less drag.  It is probably the safest of your yacht choices. Though it can still be capsized, they can’t sink due to their design. Catamarans have a flat deck as well, so if this is your first time out on the water, renting a catamaran for Florida Yacht Charters may be the best choice.

Power Yacht

The rest of the yacht rental options are all monohull, meaning they have one hull unlike the catamarans. Monohull yachts are still very stable on the water. Power yachts completely move by motor as the name implies and do not have a sail. A power yacht may be a good option if you have a lot of guests you want to bring with you. You can bring an entire party with you on your luxury vacation charter.

Sailing Yacht

Sailing yachts are another monohull option and just as indicated, they are sail boats. They are smaller than the power yachts. Sail yachts provide more excitement and adventure on the water than other options if you’re looking for more of a thrill.

There are two different types of sails you can work with. You can rent a yacht with a conventional main sale. A conventional main sail has better performance, but may be a little difficult for beginners to get a handle, particularly if it gets windier while you’re out on the water. The other type is a roll-up main sail, which is easier for beginners to handle, but is smaller and doesn’t perform quite as well.


There is not any one yacht option that is better than another when it comes to choosing a yacht for your vacation. It is a matter of personal preference and what type of water experience you desire. Whether looking for a stable relaxing trip on the water, a big power vessel for to throw a party, or a smaller sail boat for thrill and adventure, you are sure to find exactly what you want for Florida Yacht Charters.
